Format: Hardcover
The commentary on Paul's letters to the church at Phillipi and to Philemon in the New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series, written by Jac J. Müller, was originally published in 1955, thus making it one of the earliest contributions to the NICNT. Although quite a few commentaries on these books have been written since, it remains a good introduction for the layperson. It is written clearly and in a fairly lively fashion (always a plus for a commentary), one that makes the material accessible to the general reader. If there is a criticism to be made it is that it in some places lacks the depth of understanding that one finds in many of the other volumes of the NICNT. The introductory material to both letters covered in this commentary is fairly brief but adequate.

One helpful feature, which is characteristic of most of the volumes in the NICNT, is that more technical issues (including comments on the Greek text) are placed in footnotes, which permits those who are not interested in such matters to easily skip over them.

For those who are interested in a commentary that examines Philippians and Philemon in more depth, I would suggest William Hendriksen's volume in the New Testament Commentary series. This volume also includes Colossians, and is thus a much longer work. Some years ago I preached a series of sermons on Philippians and I used both Müller's and Hendriksen's commentaries. I found the latter to be more helpful.

This work was a part of NEW INTERNATIONAL COMMENTARY series. I found the work solid in its presentation, concise and easy to read. However, I found in somewhat lack luster and in many places too concise. It would however be useful for one to gain a basic understand of the epistles. But deep is lacking. No wonder it has been replaced in the series.
